South Africa: Londolozi got a brand new electric safari vehicle from Land Rover

The Londolozi Private Game Reserve, located in Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, recently got a brand new electric Land Rover, courtesy of Land Rover and Barker Performance Products, to do some rigorous and rough fieldtesting with the vehicle.

The electric Landrover runs off an air cooled AC Induction Motor with 330Nm of Torque and 59kW of Motor Power. The batter is comprised of air cooled Lithium Phosphate and has a voltage of 300V. Ranging from 80km per battery on the open road and +20km through a game reserve, the vehicle is able to offer a game drive of approximately 8 hours.
For more info about the new electic Land Rover and Londolozi's work on and with zero emission safari vehicles since 2009, please check their website and blog!
